Tottenham pair Harry Kane and Harry Winks have withdrawn from the England squad for the friendly matches with Germany and Brazil due to injury.

Striker Kane picked up a knee injury, while Winks is struggling with an ankle problem, and both were treated during Spurs' home clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday.

For Kane, there won't be too much of a problem resting up as his place on the plane next summer looks all but assured, but Winks has just come to the forefront of Gareth Southgate's thinking, and will be gutted to miss out on another chance to impress, this time against world class opposition.

The Three Lions take on Germany first in the international break this Friday, and then Brazil on November 14.

West Brom midfielder Jake Livermore was subsequently called up to the squad in Winks' absence, following Everton's Michael Keane who replaced another injured Spurs star in Dele Alli.

It is hoped that the two Harrys will both be able to fully recover over the next 10 or so days, particularly Kane who is the club's talisman and top scorer - he was substituted by Mauricio Pochettino on 77 minutes against Palace 'for protection'.
